Romp in the Park

Another nice run on grass trails in the park today, 6.3 miles in 1:05:53, for a pace of 10:27. Actually a little faster than Sunday with Jim, but I felt a little more rested today and didn’t run quite as far. It was HOT though - only 75 degrees on the thermometer, but it seemed a lot hotter when the sun shone, which was about half the time. Humid, too, I was sweating. I ran most of the time, but walked up a lot of the many short hills and even walked a little on the flat.

Wildflowers are in full bloom, it’s a beautiful time to run in a park. The route even included a short piece of my favorite dirt road along the railroad tracks. Enjoyable run, total of 23 miles this week. I need to ramp that up a bit, but maybe not next week. Might do a long race at the end of next week. We’ll see.

Yummy salad
Big salad: Jim's organic lettuces, organic strawberries, organic grapes, olives, coconut, organic red-wine vinegar.

6.3 miles is good, I ran 7.2 miles today (there was a significant hill) with a Boot Camp Instructor (she let me take the lead but put me away on the hill) in 1:09, we're still out there movin'!
